I take that computing these IDs at compile-time is a requirement? Otherwise
you could use something like:

    reinterpret_cast<unsigned>(static_cast<void const *>(&typeid(T)));

This assumes that a void-pointer can fit within an unsigned. If not, use
the appropriate type that corresponds to C-1999's "uintptr_t". (Of course
it's possible that there's _no_ integral type big enough to fit a pointer.
In that case, my plan is screwed.)
